FORGET BOAT PEOPLE, REFUGEES ARRIVING AT AIRPORTS ARE ‘GAMING THE SYSTEM’ ON A GRAND SCALE

 

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT puts its clearance rate of refugee cases at 38%. A year ago there were 14,000 cases. Since then, the appeals have poured into the tribunal at the rate of around 250 new cases every week. And the more cases there are, the longer it takes to clear them.

 

The scam

Gaming the system has proven remarkably simple in a country that proudly parades its “tough-on-borders” credentials to the world.

In Australia, gaming the system relies on a legal framework that guarantees a fair hearing for anyone with a claim for asylum. At the centre of that system is the AAT, which has been driven to a state of virtual meltdown. These are the numbers:

 

In July 2016, there were 17,480 cases at the tribunal’s migration and refugee division — by May 2019, that number had grown to 58,442.

In 2014-15, the AAT received 8587 applications for onshore protection visas (asylum) — by 2017-18 the number stood at 27,931.

Applications from Malaysians in that period grew from 1401 to 9319.

The average time to process an application is now 600 days.
